There are three parts to the Java
Announcement Display System:
- Web User Interface - To configure
JADS, a web browser is used to connect to JADS Server. The web user
interface makes it possible to add and modify sequences of announcements
and configure screens.
- JADS Server -
Handles connections from web browsers and keeps screens up to date. JADS
Server is currently hosted on the Google App Engine.
- JADS Display - This software runs
on a computer connected to the screen and is responsible for displaying
Previous versions of JADS were
designed for individual screens and combined both display and server
components into one application. JADS version 5 separates these
components and uses the power of the Google App Engine to support a
potentially unlimited number of screens and announcements in a centrally
managed, fault resilient system.
